Abstract

We report the presence of the two arthroconidial anamorphic fungi, Scytalidium cuboideum and Arthropsis hispanica, in clinical samples from the USA. Both fungi were morphologically and molecularly identified. The antifungal susceptibility of four isolates of A. hispanica and five of S. cuboideum to eight antifungal drugs is provided.
